Haiku for the week

Blue skies and breezes,
Heat without humidity:
Blissful time of year.

Spring and early summer (still feels like spring, really, although a full month late - some trees are still in blossom) is the best time to be in Beijing. We enjoy it while we may, trying to set aside the lurking dread of what is soon to come: in another four or five weeks, we will settle into almost three months of it being way-too-hot and muggy-as-hell. But, just for now, it's lovely.

We had a lovely sustained spring here in North Florida too, for once. This week, though, it's been pushing 90, and the Spanish moss is already practically writhing in ecstasy at the parallel boost in humidity.
